  • Adaptational Ugliness: In Flash, she looks completely demonic with her pasty white skin and sharp, vicious teeth.
  • Arch-Enemy: Honey's primary enemy, most of the time.
  • Asshole Victim: Whenever she gets killed in each adaptation, it is always well deserved for all the horrible things she does.
  • Back from the Dead: Her Flash iteration does this multiple times.

  • Big Bad: Often served as this, especially when Panther Zora isn't around.

  • Cute Monster Girl: Completely inverted in Flash, where she looks more monstrous, but also more hideous, especially after her resurrection.
  • Dark Action Girl: Whenever she fights Honey.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: Jill is this whenever Panther Zora's around, as she's in the foreground and more dangerous compared to her.
  • Greed: What Jill used to represent in the original manga and 1974, constantly admiring jewelry and even attempting to steal a golden statue all by herself.
  • Hate Sink: Especially in Universe, where she's a portrayed as an absolutely vile, sadistic and unrepentant scumbag who actively seeks to make Honey suffer as much as possible and even gets sexual gratification from it.
  • The Heavy: While Panther Zora's the ultimate villain, it's Jill who has to do all the heavy lifting.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Her Live Action incarnation, after Honey talks her into being good.
  • Karmic Death: Her 1974 incarnation dies by getting distracted by jewelry, the primary resource she desires the most.
  • Lust: What Jill mostly represents in recent iterations, though she was quite lustful in the original manga and 1974, particularly towards Honey.
  • Nuke 'em: Her plan in A Go Go and what she attempts to do at the end of Re.
  • Perpetual Frowner: In Re, where she rarely smiles.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Many versions of her can't stop gawking at how beautiful Honey is, though her love for Honey is, for the most part, possessive and creepy.
  • Redemption Rejection: Her Re incarnation subverts the Live Action version's Heel–Face Turn and tries to nuke herself so that she can remain her horrible self.
  • Related in the Adaptation:
    • Is Panther Zora's sister in 1974, and her daughter in Flash.
    • She was also the prototype for Cutie Honey in Re.
  • Sadist: Various incarnations have an uncomfortable bloodlust, with her Flash and Universe incarnations being the worst of them.
  • Slasher Smile: Her Flash, Universe, and Tears incarnations love doing this.
  • The Sociopath: Doesn't care for anyone around her.
  • The Stoic: Her Live Action, Re, and A Go Go incarnations, mainly to play up the fact that she's a robot.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Doesn't care about shooting up/detonating a high school in 1974 and Universe. In a scene in Flash, she was even willing to kill a young Seiji and have Honey's school burn to the ground.
